Abstract

The odontostomathologist and the dentist expose themselves to pathogenic agents present in the oral cavity. Taking in consideration at the present time the increasing number of seropositive patients, HIV infection and its pathogenic manifestations are of great interest. Considering that the main transmission of the virus is the ematic, the professional men who practise dentistry and the oral hygiene represent a particular risky class. For this reason they must adopt a series of preventive measures to protect themselves, their collaborators and the patient himself too.
